Formal Complaint to Landlord - Commercial Lease

This is a letter that can be used to make a formal complaint to the landlord or letting agent of a commercial property in England and Wales.

This document should only be used where the agreement governing the lease is a commercial or business lease.

For a complaint letter to the landlord or letting agent of a residential lease in England and Wales, a letter requesting repairs at a residential property should be used.

This is a simple formal complaint letter that provides for the tenant to explain the basis of its complaint in detail. The document also accounts for whether previous complaints have been made, the date(s) of such previous complaints, whether the commercial lease agreement covers the matter in question as well as other relevant matters.

As a general principle, commercial leases do not protect commercial tenants to the same extent that residential leases protect residential tenants. It is usually the tenant's duty to keep the commercial property in a state of "good repair". Hence, it is important to check the commercial lease to see who bears certain responsibilities under the commercial lease, the extent of the tenant's repair obligations and what repairs would be the landlord's responsibility under the commercial lease agreement.

The document is strictly for use where the commercial property is rented in England and Wales.


How to use this document.

The document is tailored for the use of one tenant. The tenant can be either a company or a sole trader. Because the document relates to a commercial lease, it also makes provision for the tenant to print this letter on its letterhead if it has one and wishes to do so. The address of the tenant should be the address of the commercial property that the formal complaint is about. Once the document has been filled to satisfaction, it can be simply posted to the landlord or letting agent.


Applicable Law.

The applicable law for this document is the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954.
